We may ask for a safety/good housekeeping deposit of £125.00, returnable after your holiday.


To complete your booking, you will need to pay a deposit, or the full amount due if booked within four weeks of arrival. We accept most credit or debit cards, or a cheque. We do not store or hold details of cards.

When booking a property, please note the number of guests the property can sleep. On no account, unless by prior arrangement, can this number be exceeded. The property insurance would be invalidated and you would be liable for damages.

Damages – minor damages, such as a glass/plate breakage, will not be charged for, we ask you to  replace if you can, to  consider others who may use the property after you.

Serious damage, by accident, or wilful, will be pursued and by agreeing to  these Terms and Conditions, you agree to  us charging for breakages or damaged goods such as televisions, mattresses, furniture and white goods.

 We will of course consider the age and condition of any broken or damaged article and charge a fair and reasonable price.


You may cancel your reservation up until 2 months before your booking date.  If you want to cancel, tell us by selecting the contact us form and sending us your cancellation details.

Your cancellation is effective when we confirm your cancellation by email.

Cancellations made within two months before arrival are subject to the full charge of the holiday, unless we replace your booking, in which case the difference in cost, less administration charges, will be refunded.

I.e. Cost of holiday £695, new, replacement booking £400, admin charge £15, deposit – £175,  total – £590, therefore no refund.
Cost £695, replacement – £650, admin – £15, deposit – £175, total – £840, refund £695.
